Members of team Trump poured into the Kushner residence to celebrate Shabbat Friday evening. 

Department of Commerce pick Wilbur Ross and his wife Hilary Geary Ross were in attendance. Hope Hicks, Ivanka’s unofficial advisor Dina Habib Powell and husband Richard Powell also joined the celebration.

President of Goldman Sachs Gary Cohn, Department of the Treasury pick Steve Mnuchin and his partner Louise Linton were all sighted heading into the Kushner home.

Earlier that day, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner’s home was a frenzy as people worked to get the house ready for Shabbat Friday afternoon.

A florist, a rabbi, caterers and a glam squad were pictured entering the couple’s new D.C. home.

The couple was later seen welcoming guests into their home for the festivities.

The Jewish family was preparing for the day of rest after a hectic week following President Trump’s inauguration.

This time last week, the couple was likely getting dressed for the inaugural balls. Today, makeup artists were seen standing outside of their home in the Kalorama neighborhood chatting with Rabbi Levi Shemtov.

With so many people coming in and out of the house, it was so surprise that secret service agents were present to inspect caterers and florists.

Rabbi Levi Shemtov was also present. The Chabad is located just blocks from Ivanka and Jared’s new home.

The Orthodox synagogue, run out of a simple brick building in the Dupont Circle neighborhood, is smaller and less ornate than others in the area.

As is the tradition in Orthodox synagogues, men and women are separated by a wall divider during prayer services. It has a congregation of around 50 members, including President Obama’s Treasury Secretary Jack Lew.

The family has spent the past week adjusting to life in the nation’s capital after moving from New York City.

The first daughter shared a snap of her two oldest children playing at a local park on Instagram on Thursday night.

The adorable photo shows Ivanka’s daughter, five-year-old Arabella, pushing a bundled-up Joseph, three, on a swing.

Arabella looks on from behind and Joseph laughs as their mother gets a snapshot of the loving moment. Ivanka captioned the photo with a heart emoji.

Jared Kushner had a brush with nature Friday morning, as he headed into work at the White House.

The son-in-law and adviser to President Trump was leaving his home in the upmarket Kalorama neighborhood of DC when a wild fox was spotted outside the house next door.

It’s a sight that Kushner, who has lived in New York City for most of his life, will have to get used to now that he’s suburbian.
